Resisting!

Acts 9 Saul met with Christ on the way to Damascus and that encounter made him to be temporarily blind, temporary because Ananias had been ordained to restore his sight.

Saul lost his sight and was led by his companions to Damascus, to the house of Judas where it has been ordained for Ananias to meet with him.

I wonder how many people, potential Saints, have been blinded by the awesomeness of the encounter they have had with the person of the Holy Spirit!

I wonder how many people, “leaders” have been blinded also, they have lost touch with reality, for they have “spent too much time” in the presence of the light!

And the companions, they heard the sound, but did not see anyone. Had they, instead of leading, informing, guiding, and instructing, they block information from Saul, he would not have become Paul, or maybe not. God always has back-ups! No one is indispensable!

Would reluctant Ananias be patient with the kind of sycophants hanging around our leaders today? Had Saul’s companion hindered Ananias from seeing Saul, he probably would have remained blind. Can you fathom that?

Nowadays, we have countless people that do not have solution or suggestions to temper a looming crises, yet they stand in the way of the solution bearers.

Father, I pray that you will be merciful to us. For as many of us standing in the way of what you are doing in our midst this season, Lord be merciful and help us to move aside, that your will may be done.

May we not resist the power that we should embrace, and embrace the force we should resist.

Pour out your Spirit afresh on us Lord. Let every scale covering our eyes of understanding be removed in Jesus Christ mighty name I pray. Amen

Shalom! Shalom!

Wisdom – The Principal Thing!

download (1)James 1: 5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Wisdom is required to be a sign and a wonder! Wisdom is needful to be who God created us to be. Wisdom is required to rule in the midst of our enemies.  Friends, wisdom is required to bring forth treasures from earthen vessels! God did invest so much in you and I before the foundation of the earth was laid, before we ever came into being! We have so much within that needs to be brought out for the pleasure of the Most High God. There are precious and rare gifts in each of us that needs to be unwrapped! Wisdom is required to live life, to fulfil purpose, to operate as an heavenly being on earth! Wisdom is necessary to have dominion!

Proverbs 4: 5 Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.  Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.”

How then do we know we have received wisdom, this precious seed that gives birth to seeds from which all our needs are met?

1 John 5: 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

Now that you have received wisdom what next? Put your wisdom to work to showcase the grace of God in your life. You and I have received wisdom to birth the greatness within us friends! Let us begin to act on the Word we have received by the help of the Holy Spirit to be who God created us to be.

Romans 8: 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

Friends, we have been crowned with glory and honor, we are joint heirs with Christ Jesus, endowed with wisdom from above, the wisdom that is not of this world, we have the Holy Spirit – the power of God Almighty within Us, what are we waiting for?

Step out in confidence of guaranteed victory, wonder, signs and miracles in Christ Jesus for the World is waiting for US. We are desperately needed to manifest God’s divine presence as light shining bright in utter darkness.

Almighty Father, Eternal King of Glory, Everlasting King of Kings, let your kingdom come upon us and your will be done in our lives, homes, families and Churches in Jesus mighty name. Amen
